3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice deep orange color, good head and lacing. Nose: moderate grassy floral hops. Taste: floral hops, bready malt, med body, med carbonation. Hops are well balanced by maltiness. Nice bitter resinous aftertaste. More of a bitter rather than IPA

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
En IPA i engelsk stil som skiljer sig en del från sina yngre amerikanska bröder. Inte så mycket citrus och lite mer maltig sötma. Golding ger sin speciella lite unkna beska och Fuggles sin lite parfymerade arom. En lättdrucken och måttligt besk IPA som funkar bra.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Golden clear, finger thick cream tanned head. Smells of pine, malts, flowers. Also some fruity notes. Taste is malty with some sweetness. Finish is hoppy but when i read india pale ale on the bottle i expect alot more hops and bitterness than this beer can offer. The bitterness suits more a ESB as also stated here on ratebeer

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
5.3% I reckon, though not bottle fermented? Should check again. Bottle from the London Pride in Ljubljana, shared with ogivlado.
Poured a clear amber body with a medium sized off white head that went away relatively slowly. Sweet, agrumey aroma hop nose. Yay. Sweet, almost candyish lemon in the taste over an ashy, earthy, slightly carroty bitterness. Not flashy but better than most if not all Fuller’s beers we’ve tasted so far from this haul, and it’s not even nearly as well rated as some of those.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 50cl. Aroma: Spicy goldings hops showing up in the nose which are accompanied by fudge and wild strawberries. Appearance: Beautiful clear amber with a creamy head which leaves a beautiful lace. Taste and palate: Medium bodied. Lovely hop profile. Good bitterness. Leafy. Dry finish which is reminiscent of candied apricot. Overall impression: A lovely beer from Fullers again. My version was at 5.3 ABV.
